When I read this book, I already knew the basics about Gillian Anderson. It, however, only had the basics about her. It did not really give a lot of detail in some parts, and was a little confusing in others. I think the pictures section should have been in color, also. So, if you know a decent amount about GA, I do not reccomend this book. It would be all review to you. But, if you don't know much about Gillian Anderson, you should read it.
